Broadway Dance Center’s youth training and performance company, Arts in Motion (AIM), is designed for elite students who exhibit excellence in talent, versatility, discipline, and professionalism. AIM members are selected based on performance ability, technical skill, leadership, and the demonstrated desire to perfect their craft. Our primary goal is to expose these dancers to all facets of the dance industry through weekly master classes, seminars, rehearsals, and conventions to lay the foundation for helping them create sustainable careers in professional dance.
In addition, AIM dancers work with esteemed choreographers and perform works that are showcased throughout New York City. Past performances include: Fleet Week for Pastry Shoes, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Good Morning America, Britney Spears’ perfume launch, The Today Show, the Young Choreographers Festival, the BDC Student Showcase, Project Dance NYC, Heart & Feet Benefit, Friends for Japan Benefit, the Dr. Oz Show, M.O.V.E for Autism, and countless others!
To be eligible for AIM, dancers aged 9-18 years must be enrolled in two or more CTP classes; they are selected by industry panel at our multi-disciplinary audition.

Broadway Big Brother/Big Sister
The Broadway Big Brother/Big Sister Program, created by Lainie Munro, provides aspiring young performers in BDC's Children & Teen Program the opportunity to work with and learn from professional dancers in the Broadway community. The young performer is matched with a Broadway professional whose own personality, style and interests complement the child; a true "Big Brother" or "Big Sister." The children meet for six Sundays at the Broadway Dance Center, working side by side with their Big Brother or Sister, rehearsing a production number choreographed by Ms. Munro. Through rehearsals and a performance, the children gain invaluable experience: they learn about performing and acting with a partner, staging, and professional work ethics. The wealth of knowledge and experience that each Big Brother or Sister brings to the table is immeasurable, and the students learn a great deal about the "business" of show business and the hard work and discipline involved in making a career as a professional performer. Students ages 9-18 yrs must be enrolled in at least two classes in the Children & Teen Program to audition for the BBBS program.
